I dug up the kale plants and cut all the seed heads. Even though they are exposed and will get rained on, they will still dry out enough to save some seeds (and hanging them like this also allows them to self-sow all over the garden). Plus they do double-duty as teepee decor!

Even though these have been dug up and roughed up, these are such hardy plants I can replant them in a shady location for the summer and they will continue to grow and come back with new leaves/shoots.

Christmas in June? The sparkly water droplets look like tiny Christmas lights and the asparagus foliage kind of like a fir!
